In It To Win It!

I heard the song Good Vibrations by Marky Mark in my Butts and Guts class on Monday and it's a blast from the past.  I added it to my workout playlist and if you are looking for something with a good beat this is a great song.  Marky Mark's abs in the video are amazing by the way if you haven't seen the video yet.  I wonder what his workouts look like?

One of the phrases in the song that stuck me is: "If you ain't in it to win it
Then get the hell out"  The words/phrase "in it to win it" I've been noticing allot in other songs I've been hearing on the radio the past few days as I drive around town running errands.  For me the phrase means no going back.  I'm in this for a lifetime.

Last night I had my WW meeting and announced I lost 4lbs for a total loss of 75lbs.  When you reach such a milestone at WW you get these little washer type things with the lbs that you've lost (25, 50 or 75) etched on them.  I was given a 25 and a 50 as she was out of the 75's.  I want to do something with them but not sure what yet.  They mean allot and I want to honor them as they represent allot of hard work.  The leader asked me what I could share to sum of my experience to date for being successful.  This is what I said:  "If you have a bad day don't let that take over and ruin all the hard work you've done already.  Be persistent and never give up.  Just keep trying."

Is it hard work to change my diet and exercise? YES!  Did it happen overnight?  NO! There are a million little pieces a joy that all that hard work brings me.    I'm in it to win it - this time there's no going back.  No matter what.
